Consider staying on a local island:

Staying on a local island rather than a resort can be a great way to save money. Local guesthouses and homestays are often much cheaper than resorts, and you’ll experience local culture and cuisine.

Look for all-inclusive packages:

Many resorts offer all-inclusive packages that can be a great way to save money on food and activities. Look for packages that include meals, drinks, and activities such as snorkeling and Diving.


Eat local:

Eating at local restaurants and cafes can be much cheaper than eating at resorts or international chains. Look for local dishes such as mas huni (a coconut and tuna salad) and hedhikaa (a selection of savory snacks), and try street food such as masroshi (a pastry filled with fish or vegetables).
